I could almost see daylight.
It wasn’t pitch black when I came out after work today 🙂 Well I can’t say that it was especially much daylight left but I could at least see some blue sky where the sun had gone down. It’s nice to feel that hope of a future again 🙂 So I’m hoping that next Monday by the time I’ll get home it will look much like it did when I started to drive homewards today.
Two of the eight persimmon seeds that had started to germinate now show small stalks above the soil 🙂 I can’t see the leafs yet because the old seed shell still sits on top of them. It is a bit early in the year but I hope I can keep them alive until spring arrives and I can place them outdoors. I took a look at my Black walnut in the garden the other day and I must say it looks very healthy. Other small bushes and trees got damaged when that first night that was so nasty cold came but the walnut looks fine 🙂 Who knows, it might survive and give me some nuts in fifteen years or so 🙂
The wind still blows but I think it has calmed down some and it has changed direction so now I can’t feel it in my garden. The good thing to live in a slope like I do is that most times the wind never reach and it’s always a few degrees warmer here in summer. The bad thing is that it’s always many degrees colder in winter. Spring arrives two weeks later to my garden than it does at my neighbors up the slope 100 yards away 🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and some sandwiches. I had hoped that the books I’ve ordered should have arrived now but it looks like I must wait a few more days. So I guess that means I need to find something on tv to watch but I doubt I’ll find anything interesting. Well I can always go to bed of course 🙂
Have a great day!
